The long-awaited new Giant Food Store, located at 7150 Hamilton Boulevard in Trexlertown, will open its doors to the public on Dec. 7 at 8 a.m., the company announced in a release.
The store will replace the old location, which will close on Dec. 6 at 6 p.m. The company said the new Trexlertown location boasts 74,000 square feet of shopping space, an increase of 17,000 square feet. The store's amenities will include a pharmacy and a gas station, the company said.
The company said Michelle Rex has been appointed as general manager of the new store, which will be open 24 hours a day and employ 250 people.
“We have been committed to the Trexlertown community since 1996, and we are
excited to introduce a number of state-of-the-art amenities to our customers in our new store," said Rex in the release. “We can’t wait to show off our new look that will feature a pharmacy and fuel station, plus customers will still find the same friendly associates providing great service, quality, selection and savings.”
